This High Resolution Distributed Seismograph DAQlink III is the combination of a standard DAQlink III with an “expansion bubble”.  This expansion bubble houses a high-speed networking subsystem for passing trigger signals and seismic data between units.  The entire system is connected to a computer controls the seismograph and stores the acquired seismic data. The distributed system can be interconnected through conventional geophone-style cables, or high-speed network-style cables, or else conventional Wi-Fi transceivers.  Plus, all Distributed DAQlink III units can be utilized as standard seismographs if the need should arise.
